Directions

  1. Crumble the sausage into a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until evenly brown. Set aside.
  2. Heat one skillet over medium heat, and heat another skillet over high heat. The skillet over high heat is for warming tortillas. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Spray the medium heat skillet with some cooking spray, and pour in the eggs. Cook and stir until almost firm. Add the sausage, and continue cooking and stirring until firm.
  3. Meanwhile, warm tortillas for about 45 seconds per side in the other skillet, so they are hot and crispy on the edges, but still pliable.
  4. Sprinkle a little shredded cheese onto each tortilla while it is still hot. Top with some of the scrambled egg and sausage, then add hot pepper sauce and salsa to your liking.

Wow, a one star review just because it mentions bottled hot sauce. I grew up with a mexican best friend and learned lots of my cooking (including chorizo and eggs) from her mom. There was always a bottle of Tapatio on the table and we always splashed it on. I agree that jack cheese may be 'americanized', but come on, loosen up a little bit... it's a good recipe for chorizo and eggs.

Excellent. So good I had it 3 or 4 times in one week. Even better to saute peppers and onions before adding the eggs. Also made once with colby jack cheese and it was great too. Good with or without hot sauce. I recommend making sure you use corn tortillas, not flour, as the texture and flavor make this dish better.

These are delicious! Actually, this is my husband's favorite recipe to make so I just get to enjoy eating them! To save on number of skillets used, he browns up the chorizo then just adds the eggs and scrambles them up with the chorizo. Corn or flour tortillas both fine but a little tastier with corn. We use Cholula Sauce. Thanks for sharing this recipe, this makes a great breakfast!
